. in today's office politics, alex continues her conversation with new york times columnist, nicholas kristof who share what is haunts him most of his coverage of the cambodian sex slave trade. they begin by talking the israeli/palestinian conflict. >> i have conflicting feelings because it seems to me that, you know, israel has, in recent years been undermining the prospects of precisely the two-state vision and has been adopting policies that are quasi suicidal. you have israeli policies and these extraordinary human rights groups, historians that just totally warm my soul. this group you mentioned, abbuys for human rights are going out every day siding with palestinians who are getting their olive trees chopped down, risking their own safety at times to do that. it's a courage but anymore than that, a moral courage that i think, represents the best, not only of israel but of human beings. we haven't had this problem over the years of palestinian hard liners and reinforcing israeli hard liners who then bolster the hard liners. the reason that the israeli doves are gone from the scene is ham
